Bonnie Harris Wedding Celebrant

Personal Alternative Professional

Hi I’m Bonnie, an alternative wedding celebrant for those who think outside the box. I love performing wedding ceremonies with couples and their independent styles, creative energies, and alternative idea. I’m always happy to carry out ceremonies from the unique and quirky non religious to pagan hand fasting. “Why fit in when you were born to stand out”

Do you want to elope, have a same-sex wedding, celebrate with a budget wedding or hold a bespoke big fancy fabulous wedding in a lavish luxury venue?

Together, we can design a wedding ceremony you’ve always dreamed of. Your wedding ceremony will be full of luscious moments of love, laughter, and amazing memories. No matter which ceremony type you chose, you need to feel confident and comfortable on your wedding day. Being around inspiring, quirky, creative, like minded and accepting people is one of the perks of my job, and it’s rewarding working with couples with similar interests.

As your wedding celebrant I’ll give you a wedding ceremony filled with love laughter and a harmonious atmosphere. Laughter is a powerful antidote for any wedding day stress. Every couple wants to look relaxed and enchanted on their wedding day. You wish to be connected, smiling and look drop dead gorgeous or extremely handsome, oh la la. Additional elements such as handfasting, gin, chocolate, or wine ceremonies, unity candle, or many other elements can also be included. Though you have to provide them, not me as you know what gin wine and chocolate you love, oh yeah!!!

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

"Nic and I got married by Bonnie in a very intimate and small setting just off Port Douglas. Bonnie from the day we met her was so incredibly friendly, warm and down to earth. She made the legal side of our day so carefree and relaxed and an absolute joy. The ceremony was short and perfect and Bonnie's words were wonderful and so well suited to Nic and I. There was never any pressure, the day went entirely as we wished, and as perfect as we could have ever hoped for. Thanks so much Bonnie!!"

"I highly recommend Bonnie as a wedding celebrant! We were so frazzled by the paperwork and she eased our minds and made it so simple. We had only communicated by email and never met in person as we eloped for our wedding. Nothing was a drama, she made our vows perfectly and tailored them to our style. The day of our wedding we were so relaxed with her as our celebrant, she was so bubbly, kind, patient and calm. Our day was made so special and we couldn't imagine having anyone else marry us. It was just perfect. Thank you Bonnie."
